* CoversAlwaysLie: ''Just War'' has the deliberately dishonest kind of lying cover, with the blurb making a big deal about the Doctor arriving in World War II to find the Germans occupying English soil, and assuring the reader that this is not an alternate universe and there will be no reset button at the end. It turns out the blurb is using deliberately obtuse language to talk about the historical occupation of the Channel Islands.

** On his return appearance in ''The Room With No Doors'', Joel autmatically responds to the question "What do you want?" with a forceful "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSD75pPsquM Never ask that question!]]", followed by an embarrassed retraction and a more serious answer when the person he's talking to completely fails to get the reference.

* PunnyName: One of the aliens' historical figures in ''First Frontier'' is Councillor Ph'Roch, which if you read it aloud is pronounced "Frock".[[note]]It's also a FandomNod -- at the time, fandom was divided between the 'Gun' and 'Frock' factions.[[/note]].

* HandCannon: Dekker, the HardboiledDetective in ''Blood Harvest'', packs a Colt 1911. "Some people say the old 1911 Model Army Colt Automatic is big and clumsy and noisy, and I guess it is. But hit a man anywhere with the slug from a .45 and he'll go down and stay down." This gets a MeaningfulEcho near the end when he establishes that even a vampire will be severely inconvenienced.

Several AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho episodes, sometimes marked "Side Step", take place in the ''New Adventures'' continuity. In 2012, they began adapting pre-existing novels (from this and the Literature/VirginMissingAdventures) to audio too, beginning with Creator/PaulCornell's "Love And War".

* GanglandDriveBy: ''Blood Harvest'', set in Prohibition-era Chicago, has a variation. A passing car rolls down a window and sprays machine gun fire through the windows of a restaurant where a gang boss is eating. Nobody is killed, but that's part of the plan: the idea is to lure the boss and his men out onto the street where a second car can get them more easily.
